LYRIC

Sing Us Some Of The Good Old Songs

Ah, play us some of the old songs
Like you used to play
Oh sing us some of the old songs
And roll the years away
Lots of old and friendly faces
See them walking in
Saying sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again
Go on and sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again

Two hours late from Abilene
Climbing on the stage
Hail the conquering hero
On the Tribune’s second page
He had some brand new songs to sing them
And some heavy things to say
When a voice called from a table
About twenty years away

Ah, play us some of the old songs
Like you used to play
Oh sing us some of the old songs
And roll the years away
Lots of old and friendly faces
See them walking in
Saying sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again
Go on and sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again

Well, well, well…who’s that calling
Well, well, well…night is falling
Spirit is a moving all over this land
God told Noah to build him an ark
And the rains started falling and the skies got dark
The old ark moving the water starts to climb
God said a fire not a flood next time

Well, well, well…who’s that calling
Well, well, well…night is falling
Spirit is a moving all over this land
World’s not waiting for the Lord’s command
We’re building a fire that’ll sweep the land
With thunder out of heaven coming Gabriel’s call
The sea’s gonna boil and the skies gonna fall

Well, well, well…who’s that calling
Well, well, well…night is falling
Spirit is a moving all over this land
God said fire coming judgement day
All mankind is going to pass away
Now brothers and sisters don’t you know?
You’re going to reap just what you sow?

Well, well, well…who’s that calling
Well, well, well…night is falling
Spirit is a moving all over this land
Well, well, well…who’s that calling
Well, well, well…night is falling
Spirit is a moving all over this land

Ah, play us some of the old songs
Like you used to play
Oh sing us some of the old songs
And roll the years away
Lots of old and friendly faces
See them walking in
Saying sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again
Go on and sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again

They call me daddy…Daddy roll ’em
They call me daddy roll ’em down
And when I roll ’em…Oh daddy roll ’em
Oh daddy really roll ’em down down
They call me daddy…Daddy drive ’em
The call me daddy drive ’em down

Ah, play us some of the old songs
Like you used to play
Oh sing us some of the old songs
And roll the years away
Lots of old and friendly faces
See them walking in
Saying sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again
Go on and sing us some of the old songs
Make us young again
